Rigaku Corporation is pleased to announce its attendance at the ACHEMA 2015 World Forum, the world’s largest show for the process industries, held 15-19 June 2015 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
Rigaku is exhibiting its benchtop lines of X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and Raman spectroscopy instrumentation in Hall 4.2, Booth number G80.
Rigaku Corporation (The Woodlands, TX) is showing the Rigaku Supermini200 benchtop wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer, the fifth generation Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop X-ray diffractometer, and the HyPix-3000 2D Hybrid Pixel Array Detector. Also on display will be the SamrtSite RS, the world’s smallest portable stress analyzer, designed for on-site analysis. These powerful, instruments deliver speed and sensitivity through innovative technology and design. The Supermini200 is the only commercially available benchtop WDXRF spectrometer. The 600 W MiniFlex is the most powerful system of its type and features an available sample changer.
Applied Rigaku Technologies (ART) (Austin, TX) is debuting the new Rigaku NEX DE direct excitation energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) elemental analyzer. Engineered for heavy industrial use, whether on the plant floor or in remote field environments, the NEX DE analyzer is suitable for a broad range of utilization and was developed for demanding applications or for situations where analysis time or sample throughput is critical. The system operates on the new QuantEZ analytical software, specifically designed for the Rigaku family of benchtop EDXRF analyzers. Running under the Microsoft Windows operating system, on a laptop or benchtop personal computer (PC), the software offers all the functions required for calibration and routine operation.
Additionally, the ART division is displaying the Rigaku NEX CG Cartesian-geometry EDXRF spectrometer. The NEX CG spectrometer is a powerful EDXRF analyzer designed to deliver rapid qualitative and quantitative determination of major and minor atomic elements across a wide variety of sample types. The Rigaku NEX OL, an advanced EDXRF process analyzer, for on-line, multi-element analysis in process liquids or for coating thickness and elemental composition in web and coil applications, will also be featured.
Rigaku Analytical Devices will present the Rigaku Progeny, a handheld Raman analyzer with 1064 nm excitation for material analysis. The Progeny is designed to be customizable and flexible enough for seamless integration into any work environment.
